There is one village (about 170 people), and a school. The island is specific in that it has several levels / terraces, one above the other. This specific shape and shelter of the village saved it to some extent from Cyclone Winston, which dangerously damaged and destroyed the surrounding places, but the village in Tuvuka was with minor consequences.
